2017 - New Official Classes for Adults that want to Officiate Girls' Lacrosse

Information for the 2017 Season

The information on this web page is for adults, 18 and older, that are interested in officiating girls' lacrosse in Maine beginning in the 2017 season.  If you are a teen/player, please go to the following link: Junior Official Training


All prospective officials are required to attend a series of classes that are taught by US Lacrosse trained and certified officials.  New official classes will be held in four different locations throughout the state of Maine.  

New official classes run for four consecutive weeks.  All prospective officials must attend a minimum of three of the four new official classes.  You may mix and match classes to fit into your personal schedule as long as you attend the minimum number of classes.

 
Classes are also an excellent refresher for returning officials. 
  • The cost of the course for new officials is $55 and is non-refundable.  This covers the cost of class materials and a 2017 US Lacrosse Rule Book.  This also covers your 2017 MWLOA dues.
  • All newly trained officials will receive instructions on how to register with US Lacrosse during the last session of their 4-week course.  All officials MUST be members of US Lacrosse before officiating a game.  The annual membership dues to US Lacrosse are $55.  
  • Prospective officials will receive a 2017 US Lacrosse Rule Book at the first class as well as a binder of information, class notes, and diagrams.
